    placement of clam

    I like to put mine on a flat shell rock or another half clam shell and let him attach its self to it then i can move him around as he gets larger, after he attaches don't try and unattach, it can tear him and he will slowly die. they love light, I mean they love light. James

    Lighting should be fine, just place the clam mid level or higher on the rocks.

    Here is a pic of the spot i chose to place it in. It is very high up in my tank, yet still 6 inches or so underneath the surface. I believe my water will still stay above it when i do water changes, if not i will have to come up with a different method for changing water to ensure it doesnt take in any air.
    Any input on if this is good placement for a T. Crocea. Surely it wont get TOO MUCH light in this spot. I am aware that they are very light hungry.
